I’m back again with a new Top Ten Tuesday! ! TTT has actually moved from The Broke and the Bookish now and is actually over at That Artsy Reader Girl so go and check out everyone’s posts over there!
This week’s TTT is all about the best books we’ve read so far in 2018 – let me tell you there is a LOT! I’ve read 89 books so far this year, so let’s try and choose 10 of my favourites!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor
I absolutely adored this trilogy and I honestly am so angry at myself for not reading it earlier! I powered through it at the start of the year and fell in love with Laini! My reviews are here: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor // Review, Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor // Review, Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor // Review.

So June is over, which means that it’s time to look back and see how my intended TBR went – and if I actually did the unbelievable and stuck to my TBR!
If you don’t know what TBR it was – then I got my parents to choose my TBR last month from a section of categories I made up! You can find that post here: Parents Choose My TBR!
Here is my how my TBR went for June!
A classic book:
Mum – The Jungle Book
Dad – The Queen and I
Yay I managed to cross off both of these books! I’m so happy I managed to read them both as I really love The Jungle Book and my dad really wanted me to read The Queen and I! I loved both of them, but The Queen and I was definitely my favourite out of both!

I’m back with another tag – and a very fitting one at the moment! It’s summer in the UK at the moment, and we are in the middle of a heatwave! I don’t think the weather has been any cooler than like 15 degrees recently, with highs of over 30 degrees each day (SO BLOODY WARM FOR THE UK!), so this tag is perfect for right now!
I saw this on Lucy’s blog over at That Book Gal and thought it looked so fun – please go check her blog out it is wonderful!
Let’s talk about some summer books whilst I melt in the heat!
What book cover makes you think of summer?
Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles. I don’t know why it does, but I think the bright colours just really captivate me and remind me of summer!

Title: All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis
Release: 12th July 2018
Synopsis: Speth has been raised to know the consequences of falling into debt, and can’t begin to imagine the pain of having her eyes shocked for speaking words that she’s unable to afford. But when Speth’s friend Beecher commits suicide rather than work off his family’s crippling debt, she can’t express her shock and dismay. Backed into a corner, Speth finds a loophole: she closes her mouth and vows never to speak again in protest at the unjust rules of the land. Speth’s unexpected defiance of tradition sparks a media frenzy, inspiring others to follow in her footsteps, and threatens to destroy her, her family and the entire city around them.Review:
What if you had to pay for every word you spoke? What if silence was your biggest weapon?

So Orion are one of the best publishers out there, and I was lucky enough to be invited to their newest scheme – travelling around the country to share new books, authors, and have some fun! It was such an amazing opportunity to be invited, and I had such a wonderful time!

WOW! This has probably been the most successful reading month I’ve had in a very long time – reading a HUGE 22 books! I also got quite a few ARC’s read too – which to say I’ve been drowning in them is good for me!
Let’s check out what I read!

Title: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Release: 11th July 1960
Synopsis: A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
A true classic of it’s time, and one that should be on everyone’s reading list.

Title: Dis_Ability by Munir Zamir
Release: 25th April 2018
Synopsis: A collection of poetic writing exploring the identity, pain and power of disability.Review:
An honest account of the struggles of disability, and the firsthand accounts of how overcoming your struggles makes you stronger.
